From Road Show by C-Net:The 2019 A-Class will serve as Mercedes' new entry-level offering. But make no mistake, there's nothing entry-level about it.
The CLA-Class (that the A-Class does not replace, by the way) was a car designed to hit a sub-$30,000 price point, and those budget bones plagued even its most expensive trims. So rather than go that route a second time, Mercedes isn't simply striving to hit some low, low price with its new A-Class sedan. The end result is a car that's a bit more expensive, to be sure, but actually delivers a properly luxurious experience in a subcompact footprint.

From Road & Track: The new Jimny seems to be the lime in our lemonade this summer, especially now that we know that the new G-Wagen is nothing like the original diesel workhorse. Why? Because next to having an independent front suspension in the name of road comfort, it's also wider, longer, and more luxurious than the people at Austria's Steyr-Daimler-Puch (now Magna Steyr) could have ever foreseen. In fact, the Gs became so fancy that it almost feels wrong to scratch their metallic paint jobs. And what exactly is the point of spending so much money on an otherwise capable off-roader when you don't even intend to go on an adventure with it?
That's where Suzuki's compact, lightweight, and equally boxy 2019 Jimny comes in. It's the perfect go everywhere donkey that now also has the looks for your local boulevard.
